Video Chat and Hand Appliqué
With a 'bit' of prodding from me, my brother got a Google Video Chat up and going over the weekend with the help of his son.
We had an excellent visit. He took us on a walking tour through his home and outside showing us 8 to 10 feet of snow they still have there in the mountains of Southern California. Don't know how he manages to keep a walkway clear for the doggies - really where does one put snow when it's piled eight feet high?
We were able to meet his twenty-two month old granddaughter who was visiting with her parents. I have dubbed her Cindy Who. IMHO, looks just like her. Adorable ! ! ! !
Yesterday was the first class of Hand Appliqué. Class will meet once a month for six months. Our practice piece will result in a twin size quilt top. At the end class we should have a completed 80" x 64" quilt with six pieced blocks and six hand appliquéd. The kit isn't in my colors, but, it is after all a practice piece.
Great instructor - Dawn Heese - who is knowledgeable and has lots of experience. And has the ability to teach. I learned a number of very good techniques and really feel confident that I can complete the first block by next class. She wants NO UFOs ! ! ! Yikes, I better get cracking. Am really looking forward to working on this project.
